Dear Ones,


Just before dawn today I awoke hearing a tremendous clap of thunder. The cat jumped off the bed and went to hide in the farthest corner of the room.

I thought: Rain! Wonderful! Just what the ranch families round here have been praying for! And I fell asleep again.

Shortly thereafter I awoke with a nightmare … of a thin, blonde little boy, hiding in a closet behind some clothes. Frightened for his life.

I checked my body … muscles super uptight. I checked my pulse … blood was roaring through my veins. And my chakras were tapping out a sort of Morse code of distress.


What to do about scary dreams and visions? Well, there are a couple of possibilities. One thing I always seem to do automatically is to allow my mind to step in and trace back what might have led up to the scary thing. Which is what happened this morning. I started thinking – oh, this nightmare happened because I started reading that detective novel last night, and there was that scary description of a crime in it. And then I thought, oh yes, this is because when I was little there was a big thunderstorm. The storm was so severe, the whole house was shaking with it. And our babysitter got terrified and went and hid in the clothes closet, and shut the door and wouldn’t come out. I remember that….

Very logical train of thought. But not very useful, as I was still in a high state of alarm.

So then I remembered how Sandra Walter (1) has been talking about opening the High Heart and the new chakra that’s being created just beneath that. So I placed my hands on my High Heart (just beneath my collar bone). I felt my high heart fluttering like a captive butterfly! But then the moment I placed my hands and my awareness there, my high heart became strong and whole again. My body stopped trembling. My mind stopped racing. Fini!

Here’s the thing … I tend to think I’m thinking my own individual thoughts, feeling my own individual emotions. But this isn’t so at all. It’s more like I’m swimming around in a sea of unconscious thought … the unconscious thought cloud of the world.

Some places on Earth … such as in high-crime areas … the thought cloud is muckier than other places, and these are good places for me to avoid. Sometimes … such as after dark, or on cloudy days, or when I’m fatigued or sleeping – I’m more susceptible to the thought cloud than other times. (2)


Add to that the ascension factor … since the Shift, Earth has been shrugging off layer after layer of the unconscious thought cloud. It’s like riding a bucking bronco of unconscious thought. Or like riding the ocean waves, with wipeout after scary wipeout, but each time surfacing, exhilarated, to the joy of sparkling waves and sun.

I’m reminded of a person I used to know, a former surfer, now a skier mainly. He had an old friend, a fellow surfer from Hawaiian days. Since then they had both moved to the California Coast. It had been decades since they had surfed together. But still, every time the waves got good, this friend would call and say … Jim! Surf’s up! Let’s go ride the waves!

So this morning, I got a call from Earth. Surf’s up! Fear everywhere! Feel your heart! Feel the love! Grab your cat and give her a reassuring hug! Reclaim your power as a human being!

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

(2) I’m reminded of a poem I once wrote …

a poem by Alice B. Clagett

“O, we are all deep sea divers
and at night we ride the whale,
who churns and turns our dream-time hearts
with the strength of his mighty tale.

“When morning comes, we stretch and yawn,
and walk to the window sill,
with nary a thought of those deep sea dreams
or the whale that we’re riding still.

“All the sad, bad tales of our childhood woes
sink down into the deep,
and the length and breadth of our grown-up lives
are the size of the secrets we keep.”

Which is to say, my encounters with the unconscious thought cloud of the world are just a way of bringing my own painful memories to my awareness. Why? Surely not to scare the dickens out of me!
